Review: Temple House Hotel Chengdu


Book A Stay

I would like to share another exciting luxury hotel opening with you, this time in the Chinese city of Chengdu. The Temple House is a luxury boutique-style hotel in Chengdu near the Taikoo Li shopping district and within walking distance of designer stores.

Wherever you decide to stay, book via our luxury travel concierge. We offer free upgrades, free breakfasts, and free perks at hotels, including Four Seasons, Aman, Belmond, Hyatt, Ritz-Carlton, Marriott, InterContinental, and more. You also get your usual Marriott Bonvoy, Hyatt, Hilton, and other loyalty points and status benefits when you book with our concierge.

The entrance is through a beautifully renovated 100-year-old courtyard building. The old building looks particularly stunning at night, lit up and dotted with vegetation. You are almost stepping back in time while remaining in a chic and luxury environment. All the communal rooms come alive at night. Jing’s cocktail bar has an American-style layout with booths, tall bar stools, and an outdoor terrace. The other two restaurants offer similar modern and vibrant designs with lots of wood, leather, booths, and floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the central courtyard.

Rooms are modern, Asian design and minimalist, which contrasts nicely with the richer and more detailed communal areas. If anything, the rooms slightly lack in character compared to the rest of the hotel, which is so packed full of interesting materials, textures, views, and lighting.

The overall feel of the hotel is urban chic with character, and with just 100 rooms, this will be my go-to hotel in Chengdu. The deluxe temple suite starts at ¥3,499 CNY (about £356 GBP).
